I spent today at the Syracuse Catholic Women’s Conference and it was ahhhhmazing! Not only did I get to wear this fun distressed-type textured shirt that I can’t wear in my daily mom life because the baby likes to pick at the seams, but I got to hear the amazing Simcha Fisher speak (and see her beautiful baby Corrie!), as well as Sr. Miriam James Heidland, who is one of the most amazing women I’ve ever heard, and Fr. Andrew Apostoli, who spoke about Fatima, which, as you may remember, was a big turning point in my faith life. Extra great was that I got to go to the conference with my childhood best friend, the one who I went to Fatima with. Great great day. I posted some pictures on Instagram, which don’t nearly do justice to how very cool the whole thing was.
I also prayed for all of you during the beautiful Mass. ❤
And guess what? I have a really really fun consultation lined up for Monday! A tiny hint: it may or may not have to do with an unseen house and an unscripted life … 😉
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!
